My surgery is rapidly approaching (7 Oct) and I am trying to get things set up in advance.

There have been lots of comments about "pads" for the incontinence. I looked at WalMart and they have a variety of pads (brands and sizes) which don't indicate whether they are for male or female. Several people have made mention of male pads; where do you get them? Are the WalMart pads the right thing? Which ones?

are what I used. Walmart & most drug stores carry them. I used full size for about 2 weeks then the pads for another 2 weeks before I regained bladder control. Good luck.

A few weeks ago, before my surgery I was where you are. Looking up and down the isle at Walmart.

I chose the Assurance Brand by Tyco Healthcare. They have a special contoured shape and cup design made for men. I chose the extra absorbency ones. The fact that they were about half the price of some of the others was a plus. I was never one to feel good about flushing money down the toilet. This is figurative of course, don't flush the things unless you know a good and cheap plumber.

I am a baseball umpire and to me they fit very much like the banana shaped protective cup that I wear during games. They are extremely comfortable and form fitting. Bought the bag of 52, which is a unique number, given the fact that I don't think they were meant for one a week to last me for a year.

Hope this helps.

Good luck on your surgery.
